The debut of Drew Lock has moved one step closer.

The Broncos officially have activated quarterback Drew Lock from injured reserve. To create a roster spot, the Broncos have released quarterback Brett Rypien.

Although coach Vic Fangio has been coy, it’s widely expected that Lock will supplant Brandon Allen on Sunday against the Chargers.

A second-round pick from Missouri, Lock suffered a wrist injury in August.

The 3-8 Broncos are one loss away from their third straight losing season. The 4-7 Chargers need to run the table to have a realistic shot at getting back to the postseason.
